Frequently Asked Questions
What does “Amonsagana” mean?
The word “Amonsagana” is derived from 2 Visayan dialects: “amon” in Ilonggo means “our” and “sagana”, in Cebuano means “abundance”. As the name suggests, the discerning few who choose to live at Amonsagana will be offered an abundant lifestyle that will be the envy of others.
The dragonfly in the logo symbolizes agility, power, prosperity, purity, harmony, happiness and self realization. Dragonflies have a deep connection with nature and dwell only in natural habitats with abundant resources. Needless to say, Amonsagana is a natural haven for the amazing dragonfly. The four wings of the dragonfly also represents the 4-phased development of Amonsagana.
The choice of colors in the logo is significant as well. Orange – a combination of yellow (for perfection and nobility) and red (for happiness and power) is the color of transformation. It is also associated with fun, the unconventional, activity and taste. Green is the traditional color of safety and permission – it is associated with nature, vivacity, freshness, calm, tolerance, status and prosperity. Amonsagana hopes to redefine and transform lifestyles in an unconventional but fresh and natural way.
What does Amonsagana offer you?
Amonsagana offers a whole new lifestyle concept that will take care of you in mind, body and soul, through the three P’s it advocates:-
PEACE for the soul – to attain greater levels of calmness and inner joy;
PROSPERITY for the body – to maintain wealth in the form of good health;
PURPOSE for the mind – to sustain the passions and convictions/values that give meaning to
What inspired the realization of Amonsagana?
In a world of ultra-fast changes, we need to stop and re-think our priorities, more so for the active retirees who have achieved their fame and fortune through many years of hard work and diligence. The project drew inspiration from four common desires which have been identified:
The desire for an active, enjoyable and healthy lifestyle in a vibrant community of likeminded people;
The desire to escape from the urban congestion and complexities and to find a perfect balance in nature and its simplicities;
The desire to play an active role in global issues like climate change and environmental sustainability; and,
The desire to reduce food-related diseases through promoting local and sustainably grown organic food.
So, what type of development is Amonsagana?
Amonsagana is master planned as a premier class retirement village community with subdivided residential lots, road network, parks, gardens, nature trails, ponds, preservation areas and a host of amenities, covering a total area of 32 hectares (320,000 square meters).
The project will be developed in four phases, each phase being named after one of the 4 basic elements – Saga Tierra (Earth), Saga Lluvia (Water), Saga Viento (Wind/Air) and Saga Solare (Sun/Fire). The first phase, Saga Tierra, an exclusive enclave offering only 66 detached homes, each on its own lot, is now open for sale.
Where is Amonsagana located?Amonsagana is nestled in the Mandayao Hills of Balamban Municipality, on the west coast of Cebu Island. At an average altitude of 190 to 220 meters above mean sea level, Amonsagana offers an unique combination of natural beauty, amazing views and the perfect setting for outdoor activities.
Balamban, well-known as the “Shipbuilding Capital of the Philippines”, is a thriving 1st class municipality located about 45 kilometers from Cebu City. A leisurely one-hour drive on the scenic Transcentral Highway is the fastest way to get from the city to Balamban and the project site. Two alternative routes from the city can also be used – going south on the South Reclamation Road through Talisay City, Naga City and Toledo City or going north, on the North Reclamation Road through Consolacion, Danao City, Carmen, Sogod, Tabuelan and Asturias, though both are much longer routes.
A large part of Balamban is covered by the central mountain range of Cebu Island, giving rise to the development of numerous eco-tourism projects with focus on preservation of the environment. The development of Amonsagana as an eco-friendly retirement village is very much in alignment with the greater plans of the municipality.
Who is the developer of Amonsagana?
Syntech Properties, Incorporated, who successfully developed the first resort-style condominium project in Cebu City, the 4-towered Citylights Gardens Condominium, is the developer of Amonsagana. The developer brings with it almost 20 years of property development experience in the Philippines and overseas for the project. It is the developer’s vision to inspire sustainable living and development practice awareness by creating a residential community that is based on the environment and social balance.
Who are the designers of Amonsagana?
Principal Architect, Master Planner and Environment Planner, Architect Ma. Lourdes “Joy” Martinez Onozawa, is responsible for the concept masterplan of the entire Amonsagana Retirement Village project. Her philosophy and goal is to make people’s quality of life better by
living harmoniously with the existing ecosystem, therefore, the designed structure or group of structures built are seen as part of a whole living environment, co-existing with it, nourishing healthy and sustainable living. It is with this objective in mind that Amonsagana is conceptualized with the ultimate goal of making it known for its “natural beauty and quiet luxury, simplified refinement and unobtrusive efficiency”. She is also responsible for the design of the houses to be built in Phase 1 (Saga Tierra) of Amonsagana – 3 unique designs which are inspired by the past and built for the future. Her designs incorporate practical and sustainable principles that involve orientation, natural ventilation, water and energy conservation, waste minimization and recycling.
To complement the intentions of the masterplan for Amonsagana, renowned Water Resources Specialist, Dr. Danilo Jaque, was brought in to design the water distribution, waste water treatment and drainage systems. Structural Engineer, Engr. Romeo Decena, ensured that an efficient road network in-sync with the natural landscape and environment would be put in place. Soil and slope testing was conducted by Engr. C.N. Ramientos, an established geologist in the field.
What products are offered at Amonsagana?
Phase 1 of Amonsagana (Saga Tierra) offers 66 lots of sizes ranging from 452 to 674 square meters for sale together with the choice of one of the 3 house designs to be built on a selected lot. House and lot are sold as a package. The selected house will be built by the developer and when completed, turned over with an edible organic garden, specially designed and grown by our own agriculturist.
The 3 house designs for selection at Saga Tierra are:
“The Moonstone” – a spectacular 236.36 square meters one storey house with the living, dining, kitchen and master’s bedroom planned around an atrium (courtyard) with skylight for natural light.
“The Sapphire” – a unique 275.39 square meters one and half storey house in which the master’s bedroom enjoys pride of place and privacy on the second floor overlooking the living and dining areas on the ground floor.
“The Ruby” – a spacious 302.29 square meters two storey house with more bedrooms and
features a large living area with adjoining lanai area for you to take the entertainment outdoors.
How safe and secure is Amonsagana?
Amonsagana is a gated community – a perimeter wall of more than 2 meters in height will be built around the property. Security guards will be posted at the main gate to check and monitor the entry and exit of people and vehicles. The appointed property manager and the Homeowners’ Association will set up the necessary rules and regulati0ns relating to the safety and security of the residents at Amonsagana.
Where the individual houses are concerned, since there are no fences and gate, owners may opt to install burglar alarms and surveillance cameras around their premises. However, since the general intention is to encourage neighborliness and close interactions between the residents, it is envisaged that neighbors will also look out for each other and for the overall benefit of the community. Think Amonsagana – think peace and harmony between the residents.
Are there any restrictions to the number of visitors and length of stay at each house? This is really up to the house owner. It would be best if the Property Management Office is informed, in advance, of any visitor/s staying in the house especially when the home owners themselves are not present.
How accessible is Amonsagana to the basic necessities?
Amonsagana is just a 10-minute drive from the Balamban town center where supermarkets, wet markets, shops, churches, schools, banks, the district hospital and private clinics are conveniently located. Public transportation is also available.
What are the facilities provided at Amonsagana?
Amonsagana plans to offer a host of leisure and recreational facilities and amenities including a Clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts, putting and lawn bowling greens, fitness centre with gymnasium, health clinic, parks, gardens, walking trails, ponds, picnic areas, meditation pavilions, restaurant/coffee shop, beauty/hair salon, specialty shops and mini-market, amongst others. The facilities will be developed in stages over the phased development of the entire project.
What is the source of water supply for Amonsagana?
The Balamban Water District (BWD) has commissioned the supply of potable water to the project. In addition, all the houses are designed for rain water harvesting and recycling of waste water. Collected rain water and recycled water can be used for washing and irrigation purposes thereby reducing the need to depend solely on water supplied by the BWD. It is also in line with the project’s concept of being green and environmentally friendly.
What is the construction period and turnover for a house in Amonsagana?
The developer shall commence the construction of the desired house on the selected lot only when the buyer has paid up at least 40% of the total purchase price of the house and lot package and executed the Contract to Sell. The construction time frame from obtaining the necessary building permits to occupancy permit for turnover is expected to be within 12 months, assuming that all progress payments by the buyer are made on time.
How do I reserve a house and lot in Amonsagana?
You are required to pay a non-refundable reservation fee of Peso 200,000 per house and lot and execute the Reservation Agreement. Our Sales Staff will advise you individually on the payment of the down payment and balance of the purchase price, etc.
Can a foreigner purchase a property in Amonsagana?
Only house and lots are sold at Amonsagana and since foreigners are not allowed to own land, a foreigner cannot directly buy a house and lot in Amonsagana.
